HHS Secretary: We’ll Be Knocking On Your Door

By | July 9, 2021 | 0 Comments

• HHS Secretary: ‘Knocking on a door’ to glean vaccine status ‘absolutely the government’s business’.

Xavier Becerra was California Attorney General, where his devotion to Constitutional rights was – shall we say – less than intense. Now he is Secretary of Health and Human Services, a position for which his legal career seems to have qualified him.

I say this because experience in health care, which he lacks, might have endowed him with a shred of respect for individual freedom of choice and privacy of medical records. But his legal career leaves him quite deficient in these areas. So he is well qualified to enforce a door-to-door search for unvaccinated dissidents.

Privacy of medical records, as required by federal law and medical ethics? Informed consent for medical treatment, especially for treatment not yet FDA approved, as required by court decisions and medical ethics? Control over our own bodies, as championed by the women’s rights movement? The federal government’s powers limited to those enumerated in the Constitution, as we have understood since it was adopted in 1789?

Nonsense! What’s the matter with you? This is an emergency. Yes, it’s already lasted 1½ years, but it’s still an emergency, and the government has emergency powers as defined by the Constitution. Oh wait – the Constitution has no such provision. Well, it ought to.

The government can’t stop looting. The government can’t clear homeless encampments. The government can’t control street crime. But the government can knock on your door and determine your vaccination status, and perhaps the rest of your medical history. Got it? Now shut up and obey. Befehl ist Befehl.
